We are all feeling it: the pressure to build smart, innovative organizations. How do leaders and their organizations craft a learning organization? By creating safe and involving environments where people can identify and solve problems, plan together, make collaborative decisions, resolve their own conflicts and self-manage as responsible adults. Facilitative mind and skill sets are essential ingredients to making real a learning organization.
The facilitator’s job is to support everyone to do their best thinking. They create an environment where everyone is encouraged to participate, understand one another’s point of view and share responsibility. In doing so, a group facilitator helps members look for elegant solutions and build sustainable agreements.
Let us help you determine to what extent does a facilitative mind set exists in YOUR organization…
We do it in a unique way by incorporating training and facilitation into the process of serving you
Trainer vs. Facilitator…what’s the difference?
Training and facilitating are two different activities. They require some of the same skills, and some different skills. A trainer is often a content expert, while a facilitator is a process expert. A trainer uses lecture, conducts demonstrations, supervises skill practice, and corrects the learners’ mistakes. A meeting facilitator leads discussions and helps participants learn from their own experiences and shared information. The trainer might lead a discussion about course content; a facilitator will focus more on the process of a discussion. Facilitation skills training often includes training skills.
Here are some of the common differences between a trainer/instructor and a facilitator:
Focus is on…
Trainer/Instructor: What is discussed – to get the work of the group done
Facilitator: How the discussion progresses – to hold the group together and foster ownership
Attention is on…
Trainer/Instructor: content and task, objective/purpose, result/outcome
Facilitator: methods and process, participation of all, group dynamics
Knowledge needed includes…
Trainer/Instructor: Subject matter expertise
Facilitator: Group dynamics expertise
A strategist is a person with responsibility for the formulation and implementation of a strategy. Strategy generally involves setting goals, determining actions to achieve the goals, and mobilizing resources to execute the actions. … It involves activities such as strategic planning and strategic thinking.
Every organizational model has its own strengths and best fit uses. Along with that, each type has its own best fit approaches for evolving and leading change in and across the organization. Understanding where and how to strategically and tactically make changes in an organization is crucial for a transformative leader. For those would-be leaders, strive to find that right blend of art and science to lead and manage change.

The aim of Christian counseling is to help people regain a sense of hope for their life that is found in Jesus Christ. Christian counselors seek to make people aware of the sin in their lives that has caused them suffering but also come to know the immense worth and value they have as a person to God.
Biblical counseling “seeks to carefully discover those areas in which a Christian may be disobedient to the principles and commands of Scripture and to help him learn how to lovingly submit to God’s will.” Christian counselors, therefore, approach psychology through the lens of the Bible. We see the Bible as the source of all truth.

The more a believer reads and studies the Word of God, the greater the discovery that the Bible is a vast mine of treasures of truth. “Surely there is a vein (or, a Mine) for the silver, and a place for the gold where they fine (or, refine) it. Iron is taken out of the earth, and brass is molten out of the stone.” Job 28:1-2)
As it is in the natural realm, so it is in the spiritual realm. Silver and gold, iron and brass are not to be found on the surface of the earth but these things are formed under pressure and then dug from beneath the earth’s surface. Then they go through the refining process before their beauty and usefulness is seen.
So it is with the truths of the Word of God. Many truths of the Scriptures are not to be found by a mere surface reading of the Word but have to be dug out and brought to the surface in order that their beauty and usefulness may be discovered.
Solomon the wise Preacher said: “It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter” (Proverbs 25:2); so God’s glory is concealed through His Word but the behaver as a king-priest may see His glory revealed by searching out the matter.
This website is a mine dedicated to drawing out the vast riches of the depths of God and we disseminate that in a variety of ways: We have our Podcast, Blog, Books as well as our video stream to feed your insatiable desire for the things of God.
It is impossible to read the New Testament scriptures (for so many believers glory in the fact that they are “New Testament believers and not Old Testament oriented”), or understand large portions of them without a reasonable knowledge and understanding of the Old Testament. The New Testament is simply the fulfilment of the Old Testament. Each Testament is incomplete without the other. The Old made way for the New. The New completes the Old. The Old was preparatory to the New. The New is the fulfilment and the answer to the Old.
The New Testament has many quotations, references and allusions to the Old Testament Feasts of the Lord. The Student will perceive this as he feasts on the content created on this platform.
Through the auspices of our Apothecary school of ministry; we have launched many believers into their God-given ministry and assisted them to tap into the potential of the Spirit within them. There are three primary areas of particular interest to me and they have formed the faculties of the school. Namely; Doctrine, The Prophetic and The Supernatural.
There are many streams of truth in the Word of God; theological, prophetical, typical, symbolical, eschatological and practical. However, all of these streams of truth flow out of and back into the mainstream of covenantal truth. None of these “streams” are the total river and it is dangerous to believe that any one of them is the whole river of Divine revelation. All streams must flow out of and back into the river of God. This river is the covenantal truth which flows from Genesis through the 66 books of the Bible into Revelation.
It is also important to note the vital role of the scriptures in ministry training. Any preacher, teacher or author who sets out to expound the sacred scriptures musts needs be governed, guided and controlled by certain basic principles of interpretation.
This is especially so when it comes to interpreting and expounding those portions of scripture that have to do with historical and typical things.
If these principles are not followed and used properly, then the Scriptures, and more particularly the types, can be made to say anything that the expounder may want them to say.
Many times, when exposition is given concerning typical things as under the Mosaic Covenant, such as the Tabernacle, the Priesthood and Offerings, the hearer will ask: “How does the speaker arrive at that conclusion?”
A lot can be said in this regard. Please ensure to register for the latest session of the school. Note: due to covid 19, our calendar has been affected. Please ensure to subscribe to our email list to be notified of developments
The core of our ministry is “To reach the lost and to teach the found”. It is what drives us and the very edge of the sword the Lord has given us. The Preacher said “All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again” (Ecclesiastes I:7) . The Psalmist said “There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the Most High” (Psalms 46:4). The more a believer studies the Word of God, the more he discovers the truth of both the Preacher’s and the Psalmist’s words.
There are multiple streams and flows in which we (Cyril Peterson Ministries) find expression. They can be summarized in our commitment to participate in God’s “dream” for a generation (we speak metaphorically of course). D.R.E.A.M. that’s how we flow:
The Preacher said “All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again” (Ecclesiastes I:7) . The Psalmist said “There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the Most High” (Psalms 46:4). The more a believer studies the Word of God, the more he discovers the truth of both the Preacher’s and the Psalmist’s words.
Symbolically there are rivers of truth and revelation which begin in the Book of Genesis and flow on in deepening, widening and refreshing glory into the sea of fulfilment, the Book of Revelation.
